Is it a mirage or an oasis?

Yann Difford – Is it a mirage or an oasis?

“Exoticism stems from what is distant and unfamiliar, but above all from a point of view. This project questions the desire for exoticism, the way it is expressed and unfolded, in a generally unidirectional Western context; i.e. from the West to the rest of the globe. This reconsideration helps us grasp that this is not a state of affairs, but rather a process of exoticisation. I deconstruct this process by decontextualising and recontextualising exotic symbols.“
